Many people dream of being able to turn their passion into a career - where they can't wait to get up and go to work and get paid for what they love.

Dain Stephens had a passion for designing and building things since he was young. At 8 years old, he built a soapbox derby car. At 13, without any help, he drew up blue prints and built a 44’L x 12’W x 9’H bicycle freestyle ramp.

After attending the University of Maine in Orono to study marketing and earn a degree, he was determined to turn his passion for designing and building into a career.

This passion translates into the quality of his work. He believes in paying attention to the details which is reflected in his fine craftsmanship, continuing education, and quality relationships.

The projects featured on this website showcase a wide range of possibilities yet, Dain Stephens Design Build is not limited to what is shown here. Dain thrives on unique challenges and welcomes the opportunity to provide a quote on anything from a custom piece of furniture to the building of a whole house.

a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman;
but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist."
